Description:

An extremely rare original (circa 1968) polaroid photograph, clearly signed in purple ink by John Mayall / Colin Allen (drums) / Stephen Thompson (bass) / Mick Taylor (guitar) and in ballpoint by John McVie.

 

Certification:

John McVie (bass) had left the Bluesbreakers to join Fleetwood Mac in September 1967, so we are unclear how his autograph is on this piece. We can only assume the collector added it at another time. This was the lineup that recorded Blues from Laurel Canyon in August 1968 which reached No33 in the UK charts and was the first LP after the break up of The Bluesbreakers. This lineup featured the young guitarist Mick Taylor who later went onto replace Brian Jones in The Rolling Stones in July 1969. From the late 1960s music autograph book of Liz Brunt of Bristol, mostly obtained at concerts at The Colston Hall. Some autographs are dedicated to her along with news-clippings and notations of concert dates. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK COA.
